Would look better if it was folded into the openings, but that ups the difficulty level considerably.

Hairdryer to heat the material..makes stretching it easy.Public Disturbance wrote:Its not that bad if you use heatoccasional demons wrote:Would look better if it was folded into the openings, but that ups the difficulty level considerably.
Cover the entire area with the material, making sure its stretched tight, no bubbles..etc. Cut an X patter where the vent is, spray adhesive on the material, take a small fabric roller to the inside of the vent..ta-da. Turn the car on, and turn the heater on low to help cure/dry the adhesive. If you can get it all in one giant piece of material, the outcome looks 16516 times better.
Thats also a little how-to
I got a roll coming, the ones I installed was from a pre-cut kit that the company offered, but it lacked in some areas, so I bought the same style roll to finish the job where I wanted more overlay.
Not really cause you should not have to stretch much at all. Most rolls come in a 24" width by X" length. 24" in width is more then enough to cover most inside parts of the car, with no stretching, more cutting to fit. Most stretching is mm in size so there is no noticable stretch look to it.
The Vinyl wrap they use for interiors isnt meant to be shiny. It's meant to look like unfinished CF, and it looks damn good in my opinion. You should never need to stretch fabric alot when wrapping something. Sure, you want it tight, but not tight enough it warps the grain on the material.robertknueppel wrote:HMM i never knew the stretching was that minimal. Guess ill have to try it. I want to do something bu i dont know what to do. I thought about doing my mirrors but idk how i feel about it. Does the clear coat work on the vinyl? So it looks like real cf(shiney)?
As far as doing your mirrors, i wouldn't do it with the interior wrap he used. Try http://store.carbonfibergear.com/3m-di- ... iber-vinyl#
